. the fbi is on the case. president obama saying yesterday that we will track down whoever was responsible and make sure that they feel the full weight of justice. we'll bring you updates on boston throughout the morning at the same time updates on what's happening here in our nation's capital where comprehensive immigration reform is unveiled today and senators in the senate still scrambling for votes on gun safety. all of that and more on current tv. support the drug war you must be high. cenk uygur: i think the number one thing viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. i think the audience gets that i actually mean it. michael shure: this show is about being up to date so a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i am given to doing anyway. joy behar: you can say anything here. jerry springer: i spent a couple of hours with a hooker joy behar: your mistake was writing a check jerry springer: she never cashed it (vo) the day's events. four very unique points of view. tonight starting at 6 eastern. alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think
to severed limbs and head injuries. president obama pledged full resources of the federal government to figure out what happened and who is responsible. >> obama: people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the of the facts. but make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this and we will find out who did this, we'll find out why they did this. any -- any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> the fbi immediately took charge of the investigation and started following up on leads. last night they swarmed a 5th floor apartment in rev veer massachusetts, taking out evidence in multiple bags. they are still looking for any photos, audio, or video that people may have from being there at the race. we're back after the break with more news of course, stay with us. drug war you must be high. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the day. >> do you think that there is any chance we'll see this president even say the words "carbon tax"? >> with an open mind... >> has the time finally come for real immigrati
? >> well, i'm not convinced that the furloughs will come about. i would say that president obama has shown a partiality to listening to the tourism industry. so i'm not sure it is really going to happen. i think there could be a change of mind. but overall america is just recovering from what the industry is calling a lost decade, where a series of idealogical arguments, and the 9/11 border changes really flattened out tourism for the united states when it was booming in the rest of the world. >> michael: it is almost too easy to complain too about how bad air travel has gotten. but what the american citizens have to go to is nothing compared to what foreign visitors have to go through to get into america. >> if you are a male from a predominantly muslim country, you have the most severe requirements. other than some european countries, you have to now have a visa and have that visa approved at an american consulate. all of that is hard for a country like russia, you could travel over a thousand miles, get to the consulate and be rejected. even if you get your
the nra. >> that's my only f-minus ever. >> you earned it. here was president obama's angry reaction wednesday after the bill, the gun bill was voted down in the senate. >> the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill. they claimed it would create some sort of big brother gun registry even though the bill did the opposite. so all in all, this was a pretty shameful day for washington. >> after this week and the vote in the senate, gun control wasn't going anywhere, but does this sense -- this was a big event for america -- the sense of increased anxiety about your personal safety, does that make gun control an even steeper climb? >> i don't know how much steeper it could be. let's understand, this bill was just about background checks, closing the gun show loophole, something the nra used to support. it was really not about reducing the number of guns that people already own or the kinds that they can own or anything like that. so i think what happened was, sadly, this took attention away, diluted the momentum for this bill. attention was paid elsewhere, and then it lost
court and the statement taken from him cannot be used against him in that trial. >> while the obama administration has agreed to delay a reading of his miranda rights under a public safety exemption, secretary of defense chuck hagel has not seen evidence to link the bombings to terror groups. scrutiny turns to the fbi who reportedly questioned the older brother tamerlan in 2011 at the request of a foreign government. this is so interesting. of russia. the fbi told the a.p. despite interviewing him and relatives they did not find any activity. the agency dropped the ball. richard, i wonder if there is going to be a lot of questions and maybe even hearings out of this or what comes to mind just knowing those basic facts? >> there probably will be hearings of the fbi whether it learned more or could have done more. critics say that is monday morning quarterbacking. it ought to be about what we were talking about, what can we do to prevent or identify young people who are radicalized and how did we respond and how what did we learn about lockdowns. as the military would say it ought not
to michelle obama for raising the national conversation about obesity and health and nutrition. on the one side. on the other hand, too, these products are so compelling. i like to call them the foods we hate to love because, you know, it's hard to talk about something that you love to eat in negative, in negative tones. >> host: michael moss, what was the reception from the food companies when you approached them about "salt sugar fat"? >> guest: i think that they were actually -- i mean, i was surprised by how willing they were to talk to me. and i started off with a trove of internal documents which helped tremendously. these thousands and thousands of pages put me at the table as the largest companies were plotting and planning and formulating their way to creating new products. those documents enabled me to convince their top scientists, marketing officials, ceos in some cases to talk to me and reveal even more secrets. and so -- and i was really surprised by how many companies have a cabal of insiders who are genuinely concerned about obesity and health issues associated with their p
to guantanamo. in any case the obama administration has shown absolutely no interest in that idea and every indication is that he will be tried as a criminal defendant in an american criminal courtroom. >> lindsey graham who himself is a military attorney, has spent 30 years in the u.s. air force, he insists he wants tsarnaev to be tried in american civilian court, but that didn't preclude at least for now naming him an enemy combatant to try to question him to see if there are other bombs out there, other individuals who may be involved. sort of this imminent threat notion. is he on sound legal ground, lindsey graham, when he says, yes, he'll go before a civil trial, but at least for now name him an enemy combatant so he can be questioned? >> well, the obama administration has established a policy of a so-called public safety exception to the miranda rule where for some period of time, it's not entirely clear how long, a suspect can be questioned without miranda warnings and that apparently is what's happening here. again, it's complicated somewhat by the fact that we didn't know exactly w

to trigger the dual explosions. president obama did something today he didn't do yesterday. he called it an act of terrorism. >> this was a heinous and cowardly act, and given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. >> well, there's still so much we don't know. who did this? no one knows. why? was it an act of domestic terrorism or foreign? was this the work of an individual or a group of people? despite the stepped up police presence at the site, despite the advanced frenzices used by the investigators, despite all the cell phones we're using, all those videos out there, there's no guarantee who is responsible for this will be discovered any time soon. it took nearly two years, let's remember, for the fbi to locate and arrest the unabomber, two decades, rather. the unabbomber. let's begin this hour with former cia counterterrorism director, larry johnson. your thoughts about this kind of challenge and the working relationships among the various agencies, f
? >> reporter: that's right. hi. president obama i'm told by sources here was in the residence tonight watching television reports of the pursuit and that all the developments in watertown as we were, and he saw this go down just as we did. as soon as it was happening, he went over to the oval office to get the latest updates from his staff and then fbi director robert muller called him to officially let him know that the suspect had been captured alive. and he decided to come out and make a statement, i'm told by staff, and they brought in a local news from boston throughout the day so they could monitor actually some of the events all day long. they were revitied to the television just as we were. so the president updated throughout the day, and he is here back at work and ready to come in, brief the nation on a -- an exciting end and a, you know, successful law enforcement conclusion to all of this and the beginning of even more further investigation, piers. we're waiting for him any moment. >> before the president speaks, important to remind everybody again that as they've made this capture
. this is a quote from president barack obama, 2011 state of the union address. he says, to put us on solid ground we should also find a bipartisan solution to strengthen social security for future generations. i mention social security, mr. speaker, because the fair tax, that bill, h.r. 25, most widely co-sponsored bill in the u.s. house of representatives of fundamental tax reform, replaces income taxes and the payroll taxes, payroll taxes, that 15.3% comes out ofer american's paycheck in order to fund social security and medicare, it replaces both of those with this 23% sales tax. replaces all your income tax, payroll taxes with a sales tax. and so for the first time, mr. speaker, we would begin to link the size of the social security trust fund not with wages in this country but with the size of the economy in this country. so when we double the size of the economy, we double the contributions to the social security trust fund, we protect social security for future generations. mr. speaker, a poll three years ago now, they asked college age students, do you believe in u.f.o.'s? folks said yes,
be a top priority for the obama administration. the issue of national security has been a top priority for at least 70 percent of americans since the poll has been taken which started in 2002. >> the i.r.s. says boston area taxpayers will get an extension on filing their federal tax returns. taxes were due today in massachusetts because yesterday was a state holiday for them. >> google is praised for its action in the minutes after the bombings, the internet giant created a link called "person finder" where you enter names and contact information about runners and people along the racecourse for the public to view so you can get information and give information. the service came in handy because cell phone service because nonexistent for several hours after the explosion. >> you can show your support for the people of boston through a badge posting on your facebook that reads "our hearts go to everyone in boston and each person with loved ones running in the marathon." >> breaking news from the south bay where a house fire turned deadly. a young victim is a 15-year-old girl trapped in
have died. president obama was briefed early and has launched a massive federal investigation. he spoke to the nation at dinnertime. >> we still do not know who did this or why, and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. but make no mistake. we will get to the bottom of this, and we will find out who did this, we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice. >> as for those who did this, no claims of responsibility and no credible threats, authorities said, before this race began. possibilities of course span the entire globe, includes the home-grown variety. could be domestic terrorism, it could be foreign terrorism. at this point, we simply do not know and there's a lot, we should point out, that we do not know at this hour. as you know, early reports are often incomplete or often incorrect so we're being very careful in what we are reporting tonight because we want to give you the facts as we know them, as accurately as possible. this is tax day and it's also close to the anniversa
. there are many unanswered questions still going on in this investigation. president obama addressed the topic of unanswered questions last night when he talked to the country after the capture of the second suspected bombing suspect. this is what the president had to say. [video clip] >> obviously tonight there are still many unanswered questions. among them, why did young man who grew up and study here as part of our communities and country resort to such violence? how did they plan and carry out these attacks and did they receive any help? the families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers. the wounded, some of who have to learn how the sand, and walk, and again, deserve answers. we will continue to deploy all the necessary resources to support the investigation, to collect intelligence, and to protect our citizens. we will determine what happened, we will investigate any associations these terrorists may have had, and we will continue to do whatever we had to do to keep our people safe. host: that was the president last night making the announcement that in fact the second suspect

and president obama. i agree with that. bill: you've been talking to many people. what are you picking up today. >> today there is a lot of fear and uncertainty. people want answers but as you just mention ad few minutes ago, it is not even 24 hours out yet. there is a lot of time that needs to pass before we find out what happened ha. people want answers but they have to be patient. bill: almost seems like we come to expect immediate answers, you know in this age of the internet and facebook and twitter and and it feels almost frustrating i think it some people and i think you can understand it when the answers are tough to come by but it appears right now they're working everything they can obviously. >> absolutely. as you mentioned with newtown there was a lot of misinformation. there was even misinformation in boston in the first few hours. twitter and facebook and all that, those are great tools. you have to vet everything. everything hasn't been vetted yet. the police are reading twitter to see what they learn. they're getting cell phone videos from people across the boston. they're liter
obama observed the moment of silence as well behind closed doors away from the cameras, wolf. >> it was a powerful moment for all of us here in boston, lisa. i'm sure around the country as well. thank you. for the first time since the boston bombings, the city has control now over boylston street. they're not far way from where i am right now. the site of the attack. the fbi made the handover less than two hours ago and there was a ceremony to mark the moment. watch this.

that their subordinates comply with the laws of war. president obama has committed to observe the geneva conventions through an executive order, but a future president could change it by the stroke of a pen. congress, one of our recommendations, needs to work with the administration to strengthen the torture statute, the war crimes exact the uniform code of military justice to remove loopholes that allow torture to occur. in terms of cia, we did not have access to classified information. this is the reason we're asking the administration to review much of the classified information to see what can be released without compromising national security and to provide more transparency and light on how the policy decisions were made. dr. david gushy would be happy to answer questions when we conclude about the responsibility and how the absence of clear standards left troops on the front line in an untenable position. on the question of effectiveness of torture, there is no persuasive evidence in the public record that the widespread use of torture against suspected terrorists was necessary; that is, that
